30 Hilariously Bad Car Repairs

The world is full of creative people waiting for applause and love. Today, we’ll have a look at thirty hilariously bad car repairs that prove you only need a good idea to make things work. Sometimes you need lots of creativity and sometimes you need to just go for it and build what your thinking. Either way we have to agree that these are some of the most creative repairs we have ever seen. One might think these repairs would help save money from time to time, but that would depend on how long the repair would last and how often you have to keep repairing the item. Sometimes it’s just better to get it properly fixed the first time unless your just in a pinch. Without further ado, here are some hilariously bad car repairs, we hope you enjoy!

The Car From the Future

How would you react if you see something this incredible on the road? I am not sure if I would stop and compliment this gentleman’s skills or laugh inside. This man seems to be moving to another planet. Wouldn’t be too surprised if he’s found to be having a mattress hidden somewhere in this vehicle. I, however, only have one question to ask – is this economical?

The Wooden Vehicle

I know who to contact the next time my car needs a repair. I don’t care what anyone else says, this hilarious hack is a masterstroke. No more bumps and damages to worry about. You’re doing it right, mister. This wonderful craftsmanship would also serve as an amazing tailgate vehicle for sporting events anywhere. We could think of many different uses for this vehicle.

Coke to the Rescue

Looks like this gentleman took the ‘Whatever you do, think of good ice cold Coca-Cola’ tag a little too seriously.  Shall we start a petition and ask Coke to hire him as an ambassador?  Will be a better choice than Kendall Jenner. Don’t agree? Prove me wrong. At the very least the owner of this vehicle is a genius like Mac Gyver.

No More Accidents

We have seen all kinds of hilarious car repairs already but I wasn’t quite ready for this one. Here’s a wooden box replacing the rear bumper. Genius or stupid? You decide. But, I hope it has been installed properly. At least if you get rear ended in this car, the repairs would be a minimal cost as you can get all the supplies at your local lumber store.

The Subtle Repair

It took me a while to find this one – look around the headlights, do you see anything different? Yes, we did, too. I’d like to see a picture of this beauty at night. Are the lights yellow or white? Your guess is as good as ours. This one is almost so bad that it’s quite good. Maybe they use night vision to drive at night, who knows.

Open Every Lock

Beer whenever you want it! With this one, you will not have to worry about having to carry a bottle opener. I know a few friends who would love to try this trick on their vehicles. Keep checking this space, this hilarious car repair article may have some new slides for you to see. We could all use some tips and tricks.

Creative Car Repair

Is this rope or thread? Whatever it is, this repair might have taken a good few hours. Look at it carefully, this is very intricate. The artist has spent time coming up with a design that looks good. Some may argue it’s better than the original. I really wish to check how strong the bond is. I think I know which thread to pull here.

Sit Right Next to Me

This chair brings back so many memories. I think ‘90s kids will remember. We all had one of these lying somewhere in the house. This used to be pretty uncomfortable back then and it still looks uncomfortable. Ouch! They may want to strap that chair down somehow to at least make sure they don’t get hurt in case of an accident.

The Paper Car

Don’t worry if you lose the front light in a crash, just go ahead and print a new one. The credit for this goes to technology. The interesting bit is that this isn’t 3D printing. Maybe he should attach an umbrella to cover the art? Definitely a creative idea to not look as obvious as no headlight, but it might be lacking on functionality.

Thief Proof Car

This driver has one less thing to worry about. I bet nobody can break into this one. This is the kind of security that we all need. Can’t wait to try it. Hopefully, this will make my insurance more affordable. We could all use any insurance discounts and savings possible. Anything to take a little pressure off the hit of the wallet and we love the creativity.

A Little Pick-Me-Up

You’ve got to hand it to this Nissan driver – the resourcefulness is to be commended! Is this safe, or even operational? We have no idea. We wouldn’t recommend it, but boy oh boy is it fun to think about! Hopefully they made it to a tire shop or home if they had a spare at home, so they don’t take that risk too long.

The Tree Car

A car has many parts and I have studied most of them since I am a car enthusiast. However, this is something I have never seen before. I am not sure how many accidents this can prevent but it for sure catches a lot of attention wherever it’s parked. Plus, if your ever stranded in the cold somewhere, you could always use your bumper to warm you up.

What’s In a Seat?

To be very honest with you, I don’t think this is good. This car is in shambles and merely replacing the seat may not be enough. Also, ever heard of seat belts? You gonna run into trouble if you take this thing out on the road. Maybe they are making the seat cushions while somebody snapped this photo for us.

Hard Cola

Listen, we can’t condone the use of 2-liter bottles of Coca-Cola as a substitute for a tire. And neither would a mechanic. But we sure would absolutely love to see this in real life. Wow. They might also want to look for a replacement for the bolts to hold the wheel on as it appears they might be missing a few.

Hang Tight

When I was growing up, my mother told me that hangers can solve a lot of problems. She was a DIY enthusiast and I’ve seen her use hangers in a variety of ways, and I can assure you – she’d be proud of this driver. After all, modern problems require modern solutions. If your going to try this one, maybe use a metal hanger though instead of wood for an exhaust pipe.

Don’t Screw With the Owner

This is not just a repair job, it’s a display of art. There’s no denying that the owner is pure genius and he has a sense of humor. He solved a major problem without spending a huge amount of money. If I was in his place, I’d come home with a huge bill and spend hours arguing with my insurance company.

It’s Actually Genius

You’ve got to admit – pretty genius solution. We’re curious about the connections inside – but on the face of it, this seems like a viable option to a door handle that won’t work. Not much for the locking mechanism, Probably should have installed it the opposite way so you can lock it from the outside for some sort of security or piece of mind.

That Pink Car

This smart driver has used tape to secure the bumper of his Alfa Romeo. Al Dente Spaghetti my mother makes has the same adhesive effect. The interesting bit is that the tape appears to be doing a fine job. I just hope there aren’t a lot of bumps or potholes there. Otherwise, he’ll need a backup plan. It also looks like he may need more tape for the rear bumper after backing into that car.

The Laser Game

I am not too sure what this guy set out to achieve. Can’t even tell what he repaired here. It doesn’t look good from any angle and I wouldn’t like to take a ride in this car. Once you get stuck inside, you’re never getting out. At least you won’t have to worry about falling out of the car. Better stay away from this trap.

The Sweeper Car

The trick might not be very efficient but it did sweep me off my feet. The only problem is that he did not use a good quality broom, maybe he should have used something other than a straw broom. Also, if you pay attention to the picture, you will see someone has left some very interesting notes on the car. LOV – Where are you E?

This Hurts

 This picture is both hilarious and painful. Any driver can relate to feeling like a superhero when you put a Band-Aid on your car. I love my car and I know seeing your baby get damaged hurts like a ton of bricks. The Band-Aid definitely offers some solace. Now all he needs to do is become a brand ambassador and start promoting Band-Aids.

Dodge ‘Em Car

As embarrassing as it may sound, this is something my dad would do. Too bad he seems to have run out of the black tap before he could finish the job. It seems like he wanted to wrap the entire wrench in black tape. I wonder if we still would’ve been able to tell it apart? 

The Green Effect

We have reached a stage where we aren’t even trying. This looks less like a repair job and more like a ‘let’s ruin it more’. The only good thing is that the car owner may get some extra points for promoting Green Earth. Now, that’s a campaign I can get behind.

The Manual Gig

This man knows what he’s doing. Too bad such innovations are not legal. If you think about it, this is very clever. You will not only have a clear windshield, which can reduce the risk of accidents, you’ll also end up with stronger arms. Keep it up, we’re behind you.

Homemade Limousine

I had to look at this image multiple times as I could not believe my eyes. This still looks like a bad Photoshop job to me but sadly it isn’t. Someone somewhere is out there driving this thing. You, my friend, are incredibly brave, but do you have to pay extra for parking?

How Many Wheels?

How many wheels does a car really need? You say four, he says seven.  I wonder if they have a different name for this incredible invention. I’d like to Google that. The world needs to know about this impressive vehicle. 

Lock 2.0

This is something your ex would do to your car for breaking her heart. I really wonder how he reached this point. The car has multiple holes and I’ve no idea why. While the creativity is at peak here, there’s one major side effect. He’ll have to worry about an extra key.

The Storyteller

Here’s another hilarious car repair job that deserves a round of applause. This guy is making the most of a sizable dent. Instead of spending thousands to get the problem repaired, he’s living with it. You might not find it interesting but this is definitely a good conversation starter.

Cable Ties to the Rescue

Cable ties doing what they are made to do – holding things in place. They are stronger than most relationships these days. I always carry a bunch of these in my bag and now that I have seen this hilarious car repair attempt, I know where else to use these. Keeping my fingers crossed. I hope they don’t hit a pothole.

You Can’t See It

This hilarious car repair job deserves a lot of attention for being near perfect. The owner must have spent a good amount of time covering the dent with tape and coloring it red. He most probably thinks we don’t see what he did there. Let’s pretend we really can’t.

XXL Seat Belt

I am a fan of DIY gigs but very few turn out as excellent and hilarious as this one. It gets the job done while making you laugh. The good thing is that it’s definitely more comfortable than the real deal. Toyota, are you listening? Here’s an idea for a new feature. Get copyright before someone else does.

Snow Man And the Car

When the manufacturer doesn’t know what customers really want. We have seen that more and more people are using brooms to clean windshields. I will not be too surprised if a car manufacturer introduces something similar in the next few years. After all, some are known for stealing ideas.

Mirror Mirror on The Wall

I’ve had my car’s mirror get damaged dozens of times and I always had to spend hundreds of dollars to get it repaired. Little did I know we could get it done on our own. This hilarious repair job shows that nothing is impossible. I see nothing wrong with this. It’s perfect but I wonder if it’s adjustable.

One Little Wheel

Make sure to maintain distance if you see something like this on the road. This isn’t only hilarious, it’s also sad and risky. For the safety of everyone involved, this guy should not be allowed to drive. If you see this on the road, stay away, click pictures, and upload on the internet to make us laugh. We hope you enjoyed this post. But the fun doesn’t have to stop here.
